Has Anyone Had Experience With METHOTREXATE As A Treatment? Did It Work For You? How Well Did It Work Or Not Work? Any Complications?

I start this oral medication tomorrow with a steroid cream. I have done plenty of research on the pill, but I dont have anyone I know who has had this one. Just want to make sure I know all sides, good or bad, it all helps.

Hi @A MyPsoriasisTeam Member if they are going to start you on similar drugs i would recommend boosting up your immune system as much as you can (particulary during winter!) Ive had this arthritis for over 2 years now and ive had to listen to my body a lot..eg rest when feeling fatigued or run down and just take things easy. I find i dont have as much energy as i used to but i suppose i exercised 5 days a week before the arthritis struck. If you have any questions let me know!

I was on methotrexate for about 5 years and it really helped my skin but I did end up suffering with migraines so I had to come off of it because of my job but good luck.
